What is the Purpose of Team Building?
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. We know team building here at Adventura. We live it and breathe it through our workshops that have been tested and honed over years by our team of experience facilitators, and our dedication to building collaboration and communication.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working to be more whole and better people. These are the values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. Our intention is not to be your friend. We are here to help you understand yourselves better, make better decisions, support one another and work towards being the best humans you can be.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How do we get from the typical work-mode to entering practice-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We help create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
